Batavia Township board hears zoning requests

The Batavia Township Board of Trustees heard three requests for zoning updates during a public hearing at its meeting Tuesday, Sept. 1.

An 18-month extension was requested by Nick Grammas for Bayberry Crossing, a planned development located on Laub Road. The property is located at the intersection of Laub Road and state Route 125, just east of Bach-Buxton Road. The board had approved the preliminary project in December 2007 which called for an additional 56 condominium style units to be constructed on the site. Final development plans were approved in August 2008 by the board. The site currently known as Bayberry Apartment Complex has 14 buildings with a total of 168 multi-family apartment units.

“As our zoning resolution requires that construction begin within one year of the approval of the final development plan, Mr. Grammas has filed this application with the hope that an 18-month extension will be granted in order to keep this plan viable until economic conditions improve,” said Denise Kelly, zoning administrator.
